Hungary’s populist government is stopping universities from offering courses in gender studies, saying there is no need for graduates in the labor market and they take taxpayer money away from other programs.

The move, announced this week, comes after Prime Minister Viktor Orban’s government won a comfortably majority in elections in April after an election focused primarily on immigration. Since then his Fidesz Party has been implementing key parts of its election manifesto.

The article goes on to state the following:

In a statement, Hungarian government spokesman Zoltan Kovacs said that there is “no demonstrable demand for graduates of ‘social gender studies’ in the Hungarian labor market.

“There is no economic rationale for studies such as these, and so we have reason to presume that it was not created in response to labor market needs, and equally not to furnish students with skills that can be readily and directly converted on the labor market,” he said. It is also questionable to what extent studies with admittedly such low student numbers are economical and sustainable.”

Hungary’s HVG said that it would only affect two of the country’s universities, but also that such courses had been in the government’s crosshairs for a while.

  1. Gender studies course available right here, right now and it’s all for free! Men and women are different and there are only 2 genders. Guess what you all just passed the course! HAHA!

    Now the education system needs to stop the idiotic teaching of gender studies, they are even teaching that crap in elementary school now. They call it by other names but it is still all the gender diversities BS.
